Patriot Post – Digest For Thursday
Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906): “The majority is never right. Never, I tell you! That’s one of these lies in society that no free and intelligent man can ever help rebelling against. Who are the people that make up the biggest proportion of the population — the intelligent ones or the fools? I think we can agree it’s the fools, no matter where you go in this world, it’s the fools that form the overwhelming majority.”
My Opinion: Honestly. Stop and think about it for a moment. Would we be where we are today if not for the Fools in charge? Part of our problem is that we allow the Fools to elect other Fools into positions of power over all of us. There ought to be a “test” you have to take before you can vote that covers current events and American History. You Fail, You Don’t Vote. And you have to be a Citizen. Of The United States.
Historian Victor Davis Hanson: “At the end of the 18th century, there were two great Western revolutions — the American and the French. Americans opted for the freedom of the individual, and divinely endowed absolute rights and values. A quite different French version sought equality of result. French firebrands saw laws less as absolute, but instead as useful to the degree that they contributed to supposed social justice and coerced redistribution. They ended up not with a Bill of Rights and separation of powers, but instead with mass executions and Napoleonic tyranny. Unfortunately, the Obama administration is following more the French model than the American. Suddenly, once-nonpartisan federal bureaucracies have become catalysts for fundamentally transforming America. Often-ideological bureaucrats have forgotten their original mission. … [F]ederal agencies are now in service to the goal of changing America from cherishing an equality of opportunity to championing an equality of enforced result. Our revolutionary inspirations are now Georges Danton, Jean-Paul Marat and Maximilien de Robespierre, not the Founding Founders.”
My Opinion: The Obama/Democrat Socialist Agenda is well advanced. Why? See the first article. In this case it is we, the “normal” Average American that believes in Honor, Integrity, and the way America used to be that are the fools. The Quiet Fools. How else could the minority prevail as it has? Because the Majority are fools.
